Student Scholarships to Attend the National USITT Conference

USITT Northern Boundary Section has had a long tradition of supporting scholarships for student to attend the National Conference. This four-day conference, held yearly in a major city of the United States or Canada, is a gathering of design and production people from all over the world. The conference includes workshop sessions, presentations, a stage exposition, and design exhibitions from all areas of performance. Attending a national conference is an incredible experience for learning, connecting, socializing, and stretching your ideas about your place in theatre design, production or related performance areas.

The Northern Boundary Section, with help from corporate and individual sponsors, has supported 54 students (give-or-take some multiple winners) since 1998 to the tune of $23,225 to attend the USITT National Conference.

NBS has a variety of scholarships it awards each year. For more information, contact section Chairperson, Todd Reemtsma at his email address:
